About IBH Psychological Services
IBH Psychological Services offers interventions for adults, children, and families and assessments for adults and children. We deliver cost-effective, quality treatment integrated into the client/patient’s medical care as needed.
Our mission is to create, promote, and maintain a respectful positive relationship with our clients, medical and mental health colleagues, school professionals, payers, associates and staff, and our community.
Behavioral Psychology
This intervention is provided by independently licensed psychologists. The format of these services are individual, couple, family, and/or group sessions. All age groups are treated. Treatment is tailored to the needs of the individual and guided by an individualized treatment plan based on comprehensive bio-psychosocial assessment of the individual and his/her/their family.
 Psychological Assessment
Services provided to client/patients include a comprehensive bio-psychosocial assessment, multi-method, multi-trait assessment instruments based on the referral question, and a written psychological report. Six to eight weeks from the onset of the first appointment is the minimum time period required to complete an assessment.
